Rated as both a half rope, Tendon's Ambition 8.5mm weighs in at 45g/m for a super lightweight rope with great versatility.
Featuring Tendon's SBS (Simple Braid System) in which each strand is plaited independently into the sheath and not in pairs one after another. The result of this braiding system is a more compact sheath. The SBS sheath has a smoother surface so ropes using SBS therefore generate lower friction forces and are more resistant to abrasion and damage due to abrasion when in contact with the rock surface.
The compactness of the sheath reduces also the effects of penetration of small particles between the fibre and this, in turn, reduces the damage to the inner structure of the sheath and the entire rope. Another benefit is that a rope with SBS sheath is more pleasant to the touch, handling of the rope is easier, the rope “runs” better and is perfectly flexible. sheath construction that combines great handling qualities with increased resistance to abrasion.
